THE TRAVELING SQUARE

The traveling square has been to many Lodges over the years in Algoma District.  The following is a listing of those places and lecture topics as far as the records indicate.

Bro. James C. Scott, in his original presentation, stated "I present to you this traveling square with the earnest wish that it will never rest too long in any one place".

"Brethren, I have volunteered to encourage and promote the journey of this traveling square to all of our Lodges within our district and with your support lets set a goal of at least five per year.  What better occasion than this evening during the official visit of our D.D.G.M."

(The lectures are compliments of the efforts of V. Wor. Bro. Leo Wayrynen, Rt. Wor. Bro. Eric Johnson and Bro. Craig Wolverton.)
